If you simply must mess with the stereo while driving (and we don’t recommend it), try putting on some Coldplay or Norah Jones. Researchers came up with a list of songs that encourage safe driving that includes Coldplay’s “The Scientist,” Norah Jones’ “Come Away with Me,” Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” and Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer.” The best songs for driving have tempos that mimic the human heartbeat. On the other hand, avoid “Hey Mama” by the Black Eyed Peas, which was found to be one of the most unsafe songs for driving. What is that song good for? Click here to view list.
By the way, I would like to add two songs to this list. I am not proud of it, however I have earned two speeding tickets in my lifetime. The song "Always Something There to Remind Me" by Naked Eyes was playing when I was pulled over by the first time. What song was playing when I got my second ticket? "Can't Hurry Love" (the Phil Collins version.) Now these tickets were well deserved and also happened in the 80's, ( I have learned my lesson!)
